Soothe your winter chills with this heavenly, cinnamon-infused cocktail.
I am not much of a brandy drinker, but when I do partake, it is almost certainly in the winter time. There is something about brandy that makes my whole body feel warm and toasty. I enjoy this cocktail best by the fire or with family and friends on a cold evening. The recipe makes six drinks so it is perfect for sharing.
This warming cocktail is a delightful way to start or end your evening. Most often I refer to it as a Toddy for Your Body, but that lends to the assumption that it is some kind of medicine. The classic hot toddy contains a shot of whisky, a teaspoon of honey and a dash of fresh lemon, topped with boiling water … or at least that is how my grandmother always fixed it. Although this version of a hot toddy is more pleasurable than the original, I doubt it has any healing qualities unless you drink a few extra and then you will be feeling no pain.
If you are craving a simple recipe that tastes complex, try this toddy. Just prop your feet up by the fire, sit next to a loved one and be thankful for your health.
